Emergency cancellations and closings

Wake Technical Community College emergency cancellations and closings are posted on the college web page and messages are on the main phone line 919-866-5000. Current students with a Wake Tech email are automatically registered to receive Wake Tech Warn email alerts from the college emergency alert system. Students can also sign up with Wake Tech Warn to receive phone text messages and voice mail in the event of an emergency or inclement weather situation.

Nurse Aide classes scheduled August through March will have mandatory inclement weather makeup dates built into their class schedules. In the event the college closes and an entire lab or clinical class day is missed, mandatory makeup dates will be used in the same order they are listed on the class schedule. If closings result in partial lab or clinical hours missed, these hours will be made up by adding hours to existing class dates to make up the time. Totally seated classes that miss lecture hours due to any college closing will make up the hours online. If a totally seated or hybrid class misses a test due to any college closing, the test will be moved to the next seated class day. The attendance policy for mandatory makeup dates is the same as a regular class date. 

Please regularly check your Wake Tech email or the email address you provided. This is our primary way to contact you about important updates concerning your Nurse Aide class.
